Geetanjali Medical College & Hospital have performed a successful “Laparoscopic Adrenalectomy” on a 20 year old youth claiming it to be the first successful case in Southern Rajasthan. The team of Urologist Dr. Pankaj Trivedi & Dr. Vishwas Baheti and Anesthetist Dr. Sunanda Gupta & Dr. Uday Pratap conducted the surgery.

Bhilwara resident Parmeshwar (Age 20 years) was suffering from high blood pressure and occasional pain at the left side of kidney from past many days. A visit to a local hospital of the district he was referred to Geetanjali Hospital for further treatment. On consultation at Urology Dept. of GMCH & CT Scan investigations confirmed the presence of a tumor of approximate size 4 centimeters at adrenal gland. This tumor is termed as Pheochromocytoma. A pheochromocytoma is a rare, catecholamine-secreting tumor that may precipitate life-threatening hypertension. The tumor is malignant in 10% of cases but may be cured completely by surgical removal. After this, the technique known as minimally invasive surgery, removal of the adrenal gland “laparoscopic adrenalectomy” was performed through 1 centimeter incisions. The surgery lasted three-n-half hours. It was a laparoscopic surgery & not an open surgery. Pheochromocytomas occur as part of hereditary syndromes. And has a ratio of 1:10 lacs.

“An adrenalectomy is an organ-removal surgery that removes one or both of your adrenal glands. The adrenal glands are two small organs, one located above each kidney. They secrete hormones that help regulate many bodily functions, including your immune system, metabolism, blood sugar levels, and blood pressure control” said Dr. Vishwas Baheti, Urologist.

Why the surgery was complex?

Dr. Baheti says during laparoscopic surgery the incision so made may lead to excessive blood loss and shooting up of blood pressure at around 250 leading to patient’s death. But, in this case pre-operatively blood pressure was controlled by medicines and then the surgery was performed successfully. The patient has recovered well post-operatively.
